Future legal champions will be heading to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on 12 March for the Queensland Law Society Legal Careers Expo 2012.

Thought leaders and professional experts will connect with the rising stars of the profession, providing guidance on the pathway to success.

Attendees will discover how to gain employment in private, non-profit and government sectors and have access to future employers from the A to Z of the legal world to make their career dreams a reality.

Chief Executive Officer of Queensland Law Society, Noela L'Estrange, says she is delighted the event is more popular than ever this year with 33 unique exhibitors and over 700 students expected to attend.

‘With a range of potential employers all in the one venue for one day only, it’s an important event to attend when planning your legal career,’ said Ms L’Estrange.

Students can sound out potential career paths with Expo exhibitors and attend three streams of information sessions: ‘Getting started – the application and interview’, ‘Your legal career opportunities’ and ‘A day in the life of…’.

Sessions are designed to provide practical insights to help new graduates make their way in a highly competitive profession.

Attendees will be spoilt for choice with a diverse range of exhibitors such as QUT, College of Law and ANU offering information on practical legal training and a number of top tier law firms scouting for talent.

There will also be information on graduate placements, vacation clerkships, career options, the daily working life of a solicitor and application and interview tips to mobilise future opportunities.

Legal Careers Expo 2012 is set to launch many new legal careers.
